Trimble - Transforming the way the world works.

Hardware is constantly changing and improving, causing older technology to become obsolete. An investment in newer, more efficient technology will yield improved performance results.

If your system does not meet the recommended specifications, you may experience considerably slower processing when working in the application.

Systems that exceed the recommended specifications will provide better handling of database files and faster processing time, thereby increasing your productivity.
